Three new MERS cases confirmed in Saudi Arabia

Today the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Health (MOH) said the country has three new cases of MERS-CoV. Two of the cases are linked to camel exposure, one of the most common risk factors for the respiratory illness.

A 29-year-old Saudi man from Az Zulfi and a 34-year-old Saudi man from Arar are both in stable condition after showing symptoms for and being diagnosed as having MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus). The MOH said both men had direct contact with camels.

The third MERS patient, a 53-year-old expatriate man in Buqayq, is also in stable condition. His case is also listed as primary, meaning he did not contract the virus from anyone else, but the MOH did not mention camel contact.

The new cases raise Saudi Arabia's MERS-CoV total to 1,484 cases, 617 of them fatal. Thirteen people are being treated for their infections.
